Recipe for a modern bonnet

Recipe For A Modern Bonnet

Two scraps of foundation, some fragments of lace
A shower of French rosebuds to droop o'er the face
Fine ribbons and feathers with crape and illusion
Then mix and derange them in graceful confusion
Inveigle some fairy out roaming for pleasure
And beg the slight favor of taking her measure
The length and the breadth of her dear little pate
And hasten a miniature frame to create
Then pour as above the bright mixture on it
And lo! You possess such love of a bonnet.
